Happy Valentines Day

Well hello to you all,

Hope everyone is enjoying the wonderful day. It is so beautiful here in Central California today, the sun is shining the temp is fantastic and it is just a stunning day.

I made a very special valentines for my hubby, but it will not go on my blog until Friday night as it is part of a hop that I am in. So come back after 9pm California time and take a look. I got the idea from a card that I made at a class I attended on punch art this past Sunday. So I am looking forward to having you all come hop and post a comment on what you think of my card.

For now I thought I would post the 3 cards that I made at the class I attended on Sunday. I thought this was great to be able to use my punches in different way.

I am sure you can tell which one was what I based my hubbies Valentines Day card after. I will tell you I didn't use punches and it is very different. Hint, Hint..... LOL.
We used 9 different punches to complete all three cards. We also used 2 different embossing folders as well. 

Well hope you liked this cards and I look forward to hopping over on Friday night or Saturday to view my special Card I made for the hop.

Thank you for looking and God Bless you all,

Your friend,
